Jewish/Asian Fusion Rosh Hashanah Menu - Jamie Geller

Jewish/Asian Fusion Rosh Hashanah Menu

It all started with this matzo ball ramen.  When I heard about this soup idea it was a no brainer, I must try it.  I love ramen, I love matzo balls, I love the depth of flavor of ramen soup broth and this soup has it all, so my Rosh Hashanah menu this year will begin with Matzo Ball Ramen and that means the menu will be all Asian. 

What can be better than an easy Asian menu. You've got enough on your mind, so this menu is designed so you can breeze through it and focus your attention on the things that really matter. 

MATZO BALL RAMEN

Matzo Ball Ramen Recipe

This soup really is all its cracked up to be, you will love this change on traditional matzo ball soup. 

HONEY SESAME CHICKEN

Instead of any honey chicken, I am going with a whole roasted honey sesame chicken.  You can also make this with chicken pieces, but it is so elegant when served whole. 

SOBA NOODLE KUGEL

Soba Noodle Kugel

Standing in for traditional noogle kugel, this one is more like a salt and pepper savory kugel made with soba noodles (Asian buckwheat noodles), it might even be better than the egg noodle version. 

CABBAGE AND LEEK KASHA VARNISHKES

Another traditional Jewish recipe gone Asian, you will love this modern take on a classic. 

GREEN BEANS

Asian Green Beans

Simple Asian green beans are the perfect compliment to this Asian dinner for Rosh Hashanah. 

UMEBOSHI ROASTED VEGETABLES WITH TAHINI GINGER DIP

Umeboshi Roasted Vegetables with Tahini Ginger Dip

I also love this simple roasted veggies with tons of umami flavor. 

ASIAN PEAR FRUIT SALAD

Asian Fruit Salad

For dessert try some exotic Asian fruits (you can also use at the beginning of the meal as your new fruit for the 2nd night of the holiday). 

PUMPKIN WONTONS

Sweet Pumpkin Won Tons

Make these fun pumpkin wontons to stay on theme, they even include one of the Rosh Hashanah simanim (pumpkin), but if you're like me and need some chocolate for dessert go ahead and make these SESAME AND DARK CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES too. 

Shana tova! Wishing you a year filled with creative food ideas.
